  • What a unique and wonderful spot to holiday

    What a unique and wonderful spot to holiday. The house is incredibly comfortable and provides several living spaces so everyone can spread out. Pool table was a bonus on cooler days and the location so close to Ruapehu for walks and Pipiriki for Whanganui River adventures. A fabulous summer spot and we plan to return in winter.

  • Log Lodge is amazing, love this place

    Log Lodge is amazing, love this place. Second stay here and it won't be my last. Great views of the maunga, very private with large grounds with well maintained gardens and lawns, perfect space for the dogs. This house is huge and has everything you need. The spa pool was a bonus for those rainy summer days. Highly recommend :)

    Beautiful big Log Lodge! The pool table & spa pool got a lot of use and the view of Mt Ruapehu is fantastic! Looking forward to staying here again one day.

    The house is incredible, clean, all of my friends were stunned by the location, house facilities, and interior design. Deb was very friendly and the woodburner was already lit up before our arrival. We will definitely return next year :)
